Ola Aksan

Ola Aksan’s practice begins with a process of pouring and dripping various densities of latex and enamel paint, the paint mixing together due to the natural water currents of the surface and the combination of multiple finishes. Observing the property of paint, Aksan tests how much the paint will resist change in response to the motion of her body and of the floor. The submerged content in her pours are often linked to nature, alien, science and environment in her psychological portraits and landscapes.
